Minimising anxiety, stress and dental phobia with Gentle Dentistry

We place as much importance on how we look after our patients as we do on the clinical treatment we offer.

Our philosophy of ‘gentle dentistry‘ is about continually refining our approach to minimise the level of stress or anxiety a nervous or dental phobic patient experiences.

For example, we have started using the revolutionary ‘wand’ to administer anaesthetic. Contrary to popular belief, it’s the flow of anaesthetic into the gum or soft-tissue area that’s painful, not the needle penetrating the surface of the skin. The wand automatically controls the flow of anaesthetic to minimise pain.

Excellent patient care from a team you can trust

Our reception staff – Patients are welcomed by either Karen, Margie or Hester who are very sensitive to how the patient is feeling and will go out of their way to make a patient feel relaxed and comfortable.

Our nurses – Debbie, Julie, Tracy, Isabella and Jo are all sedation-trained and experienced at looking after the specific needs of nervous, anxious and dental-phobic patients.

Our dentists – Ellie, Leah, Guy and Gillian are all fully sedation-trained and place great importance on spending enough time with their patients, to discover exactly how they want to be treated and to ensure that they feel comfortable before and during treatment as well as discussing treatment in detail.
